Here we go again http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2013/09/11/amc-cancels-the-killing-again-noseason-4/2797425/ AMC cancels 'The Killing' - again The Killing was killed off once. AMC canceled the series last year after two seasons. But then brought it back for a third season this year. The police procedural, adapted from the Danish series Forbrydelsen, stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as Seattle detectives. The show got heat for stretching the resolution of the mystery in Season 1 into Season 2. Producers said Season 3's storyline would be resolved over the 12 episodes of the show. It kicked off in June. But ratings just haven't been there. AMC said in a statement: "We have made the difficult decision not to move forward with a fourth season of The Killing. We want to thank our great partners at Fox Television Studios, creator Veena Sud, an extraordinary cast and the dedicated fans who watched."
